While the game is based around escaping from Minecraft jail, there's also plenty of opportunities to take advantage of the core part of Minecraft: building.

With the season comes a brand new spawn! Check it out below:
Last but not least, here are a number of miscellaneous changes:
- We will be running another Cactus alongside Mycelium (Silverfish) economy with a maximum of 600 chunks of Cactus. Fishing, Mining, and Sugarcane will be alternative economy options.
- The protection and unbreaking levels on armor pieces that are obtained from grinding silverfish, woodcutting, or fishing have been increased.
- Introducing Backpacks! These items are used to store Nether Stars and can be used in various locations on Ruby! The command /sell all will be applied to the Nether Stars stored in your backpack when it's used.
- Added new measures to ensure spawners are not blown up if you're on shield, however, we recommend that players build bases with more than a 1 by 1 claim to avoid these issues.
- You can now view statistics in /stats for the Auction House, including money spent and obtained from sales and purchases.
- We will be adding a 5-second cooldown for teleporting to the Dungeon world with /dungeon.
- There is now additional logging for Void chests, specific /f missions, faction money, TNT balances, and Chunk Hoppers to ensure we can handle more cases and issues when necessary.
- We will be adding logs to /f logs for when Raiding Outpost rewards are claimed by someone in your faction.
- The amount of kills by both factions during a raid is now being tracked, as well as broadcasting the kills at the end of the raid and whenever a relevant death occurs.
- We will remove the restriction on being able to go to the Mycelium or Outpost worlds if you die during the FFA.
- Claiming will be disabled during the EOTW event.
- We will be adding a command to view when the next bow battle event will occur in the Arcade World.
Thank you everyone for another amazing map, see you all at 3:00 PM EST on Saturday for the Ruby reset!
